Hi Kit! Thanks for the invite :)
Comment by Josie Whitehead on 4/4/2009 at 1:59 AM:
Thanks for your Email Kit. I have done lots of school visits. One of the funniest was when I saw children performing my poem "The Winter Picnic" to: rap, to dance; to mime, and sang by girls in the school choir. It was left to their own interpretation. What fun it was for a writer to see how ch... more
Comment by Donna McDine on 4/3/2009 at 4:46 PM:
I've only had the opportunity to conduct three school visits and I have to say each resulted in a positive experience. 1st - the children had to write a new ending to one of my short stories; 2nd - the children had to write up a graphic organizer for a non-fiction article on jellyfish and 3rd the cl... more

Great post about Uri Shulevitz. Thanks!
Comment by Janet Ann Collins on 3/11/2009 at 4:32 PM:
That storyboard article is interesting for a non-illustrator. A lot of it can be applied to writing, too.
Comment by Donna McDine on 3/11/2009 at 12:45 PM:
Kit...thanks f or your lovely congratulatory note...to say I'm thrilled is an understatement.

Best wishes,

Hi Kit, I'm still having trouble uploading pictures to my gallery. I can't even change my profile picture. I have no problem uploading pictures to other web sites, though.
ANYWAYS, I would like for you to check a sneak preview of a novel I'm currently working on. Go to my page and scroll dow... more

Thanks, Kit. I hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful.
Comment by Shari Lyle-Soffe on 11/13/2008 at 10:48 AM:

I love your illustrations. You draw the sweetest animals.

Comment by Karen Kerr on 11/9/2008 at 3:38 PM:
Hi Kit, I had my booksigning today at the annual book fair in Monroe county. It went well. YOU had a lot of compliments on your illustrations!!! It was fun but a little intimidating. There were so many well known authors and illustrators there. The Library had about 400 people come through to... more

Louie loves you right back!

Dear Kit,
A pleasure to have you as a pal too.
Happy Sunday,
Comment by aaron pocock on 5/29/2008 at 9:42 PM:
Thought so. Yep, the 'undo' button is a godsend... Apart from my pencil and ink work, most of my coloured illustrations are now rendered digitally, I wouldn't have it any other way for speed and 'mistakes'.
take care, Aaron.
Comment by aaron pocock on 5/29/2008 at 5:07 PM:
Hey Kit, Thanks for the kind comments about my art.
Yeah.. shame the property market is going that way eh?
Lovely work... Do you colour digitally?
Take care, Aaron.
Comment by Karen Kerr on 5/29/2008 at 7:53 AM:
Hello Kit,
I love your giraffe so much that I think I'm going to have to write another story with a giraffe in it. Interested?
Comment by Nicole Hubbard on 5/20/2008 at 11:04 AM:
I must admit, I don't think anyone can resist that Giraff's gaze. By the way, thanks for the invite!
Comment by Suzanne Gibson on 5/20/2008 at 10:40 AM:
Kit... your giraffe is adorable.
Love your images....

Will you be heading west for the SCBWI conference in August?
Drop by my jacketflap!
Comment by Nicole Hubbard on 5/20/2008 at 12:20 AM:
I Kit, I happened to stumble across your work and had to take a look. Very colorful! My favorite, though, is the one entitled, caught ya!
Comment by Karen Kerr on 5/12/2008 at 10:04 AM:
Hi Kit,
Thanks again for introducing jacketflap to me. It's a lot of fun to be able to communicate to such great authors and illustrators.
Keep in touch.

Kit, I love your "caught ya" illustration! Wow. - Janelle B
Comment by Jim Brenneman on 2/29/2008 at 5:51 PM:
Hey Kit: Thanks for the compliment. I'm still experimenting with all the options so the site isn't quite what I want yet but almost.

Hi Kit:
I can't think of anything witty or profound to say so I'll stick with HI. Great Work!
Comment by Marion Eldridge on 1/9/2008 at 11:21 PM:
Hi Kit!
Your work looks great! That sweet little giraffe is always fun to see. Your animals are very lively and fresh!
